In descent after nf, took the shorter route down as opposed to doing the whole ridge.

Descent. Lots of ab tat useful.

Normal route up, SE ridge down. 0445 from the hut, reached the ridge just ad the sun was hitting it. Wouldn't want to be any later. Route funding on the descent a little trick. Superb route !

With Andy Perkins and Trudi Smith. Cut out the ridge by going across the bergschrund and up a steep gully on the east face, descent by normal route. Would like to try the North Face, looked bloody steep though!

Fairly straightforward... after an uncertain start, but took a while partially due to a fun diversion up a pillar when we thought there was less ridge remaining than turned out to be the case! Back to the Torino Hut in time for tea

First on route, completed in guidebook time. The descent down the couloir was loose and sugary (abseiled three pitches). A cracking route.

lots of fresh snow, snowed all morning. decideded against ridge cos couldn't see where the edge between snow and cloud. gave up on direct mixed version cos couldn't see where it went. looked at another couloir but looked crap so went home.
Tobias at Home - Solo dnf - 17/Sep/06

Nth Face well out of condition. Good ridge to follow, turn the gendarmes though or it's much harder!

In descent after the N face. Narrowly avoided being brained by a fist sized lump of rock.

A very pleasant route. Dave still recovering from altitude sickness and third degree sunburn induced by one of my grand plans going wrong resulting in him walking mapless across the Vallee Blanche in the afternoon sun after doing Tacul. Seemed foolproof at the time!
